New King’s Lynn Town Reserves boss Robbie Back, pictured, is relishing getting down to business on the pitch.

Lynn’s second string host Team Bury at The Walks in Division One tomorrow and Back, who spent seven seasons as a player in the reserve set-up, takes charge of his first game.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to it and I can’t wait to get started. I’m still pinching myself at times as this is my hometown football club.

“What put the icing on the cake for me was Curly (Marc Curson) coming in as my assistant. I’ve worked with him for the last eight years and I think I would have been lost without him.”

Back, who completed the signing of Dylan Edge from Swaffham this week, hopes to improve the link between the reserves and the first team.

“I’m trying to work closely with Setch, so if I can improve the link between the two teams, even if it’s by five per cent, that will be a start,” said Back.

“I want to win football matches and yes I would love to win the league but it’s not just about that. It’s about developing the younger players at the club so I can go knocking on Setch’s door with two or three good enough to get into the first team squad.”
